I hope you are getting to enjoy some delicious food, a family game or two, and maybe even a cozy nap on the couch while the kids busy themselves with a movie. Ah…sounds like a great day to me!
I love shopping, and the deep discounts of Black Friday have always been like a seductive siren’s song to my deal-loving wallet. But since I’ve had children, the value of sleep has greatly risen in my life. There’s just no way I want to drag myself out of bed before dawn to wait outside for a toy sale.
These days some stores are opening up on Thanksgiving evening, which is an option that appeals to me until I look at the clock and realize that I’d much rather cuddle up with my kids and a good puzzle instead.
But those savvy retailers know how much I love online shopping too and they have extended so many great deals this year, I may be able to get the majority of my Christmas shopping done with a few clicks of the mouse.
Of course, whenever I shop online, I always check out my trusty savings sidekick, KickItBack! Why stop at great online deals when I can add cash-back to my shopping success too?
With so many retailers on the KickItBack site, it’s pretty easy to find something you need and grab a great deal. Here are some of items I’ve got my eye on this year.
LEGO Basic Bricks
At the LEGO Shop, I can get the bricks for $29.99 and also earn a free reusable LEGO tote bag to wrap it up in with my purchase!
The LEGO online shop has lots of online-only exclusives too, such as a set with Santa and his sleigh and a really cute winter village scene. When I shop online with KickItBack, I’ll earn 1.5% cash back.
Crayola Light Sketcher
The Crayola store is offering lots of rebates on some of their most popular items right now, including this nifty Light Sketcher.
Spray paint, stencils and any flat surface? What kid wouldn’t think this was awesome?
I’m not sure if this toy will end up making a huge mess or not, but I can bet that my kids would love it. I especially like that it’s on sale for $19.99 and has a $3 rebate available on it.
The Disney Store
There is no Disney Store where I live, so I often check them out online to see what cuteness they’ve gathered for me to drool over. I mean, for my five year old to drool over.
I love that KickItBack offers me 1.5% cash back on all my
Little Mermaid Disney purchases for my kids. (Seriously, Little Mermaid is the BEST! Let me know if you need a lady in her thirties to recite any lines at your next get-together and I’ll be right over.)
My five year old has been obsessed with tutus since she could stand, and she often tries to wear them to bed. I have been trying to convince her that this is a strange idea, but Disney has come up with some adorable jammies that include removable tutus!
There are six different tutu styles to choose from and they range in price from $12.99 to $15.00. I see the purchase as a 2-for-1, since my daughter would definitely find ways to incorporate that tutu into more outfits than just her nighttime jammies!
Another favorite of mine the kids is Disney’s hit series, Phineas and Ferb. If you’ve seen even one episode of this creative show, then you know how awesome Perry the Platypus is.
The Disney Store has the perfect 10’’ version of Agent P to tuck snugly inside a stocking or two (or three) for only $5.00. He’s even available as “Perry the Platypus” or his secret identity, Agent P.
$5.00 for a Perry plush and 1.5% cash back with KickItBack makes this mom very happy!
Three Cheers for Kohl’s
They have some really good Black Friday deals going on this year between Nov 21 and Nov. 25! Plus, you can earn $15 Kohl’s cash for every $50 you spend online now until 3pm CST on Friday, Nov. 23.
For the Barbie girl in your life, Kohl’s has a great deal on the Barbie Tawny Walking Horse & Doll Gift Set for just $19.99! It’s regularly $42.99 so my deal-sense is tingling with this one!
What are some of your favorite Black Friday KickItBack deals?
Good luck hunting and shopping and be sure to have yourself a great Thanksgiving!
